  • Solar Farm Grounds Management Vegetation Control - Abakus Solar
    a sort of symbiotic relationship Economically a solar sheep farm provides the investors with a multiple use investment property that will not interfere with the agricultural zoning of a property and provides a secondary income stream Solution 2 Low Growing Grass The idea that it is possible to seed certain types of grasses under and around the solar installation and leave it alone is extremely appealing As long as the grasses do not grow above the clearance of the modules they pose no threat to the installation In fact having grass present under the modules assists in cooling the system and improving long term efficiency Having grass under the system prevents the ground from radiating heat upward under the modules helps the soil retain moisture and prevents erosion As long as the grass never requires mowing the risk of a lawn mower throwing projectiles into modules is eliminated The initial cost is relatively low to seed the grounds compared to other methods and the cost of grounds maintenance is greatly diminished Overall this is the lowest risk choice for vegetation control with the least amount of specific design requirements The design should have a clearance of about 18 inches or greater The grass will not produce a secondary income stream for the project like sheep farming but it is an effective hedge against the costs and risks of mowing or using chemicals Solution 3 Decorative Plants Some plants grow well in shaded areas and they tend to strangle out other plants like weeds In the case of small ground mounted solar projects in a residential owner s yard this type of decorative ground cover may be ideal It allows the owner to celebrate the solar installation as well as giving all the benefits of low growing vegetation There is the need to maintain the plants such as weeding and watering so the design of the system must at least allow for work under the modules in a bending position The cost of decorative planting under modules is high initially and there are some types of plants that will thrive better than others but the aesthetic reward for the owner can be great Solution 4 Low Light Crops Some types of vegetables will grow in areas of shade diffuse sunlight indirect light and morning evening light although slower than in direct light where some others will not In the case of large projects studies need to be completed that show which types of crops can be effectively married to solar projects But in the case of small projects and home gardens plants like carrots lettuce strawberries and broccoli are possible where peppers and tomatoes are probably not going to work Also plants that are vines and grow around objects upward like peas are probably a bad idea Incorporating a garden underneath a solar project can be expensive in terms of setting up the garden but the expense shouldn t be more than the cost of a standard garden In terms of

  • The Misconception that Solar is More Expensive than Traditional Energy
    energy systems that are not quite where they need to be for affordable energy Miller said Check out the article My first reaction upon reading this was probably the same as yours WHAT THE REALLY then I read it again twice And again my response REALLY One of two possibilities exists Either the utility companies are responsible for writing the legislation that governs them or delegates in states like Virginia are actively enabling the weakening cheapening and abuse of the RPS because they really BELIEVE that solar and other renewables are still too expensive My suspicion is that the education on renewable energy provided to legislators is largely provided by utility companies Therefore both possibilities must exist simultaneously So as part of an attempt to educate both the reader and any potential lawmakers that may happen upon this here is a quick rundown on the cost of solar energy Let s be honest for a moment Solar technology and other renewable energy sources are already cheaper than coal oil or methane gas And the industries responsible for making strides have done a great job in improving the respective technologies through market forces in the existence of viable markets see my speech titled Moore s Law http www abakus solar us blog moores law from the 2011 Virginia Governor s Energy Conference In a direct comparison with solar energy the price of traditional energy increases over time where solar energy decreases exponentially On a simple graph taking the current retail price 10 cents for traditional energy and indexing escalating at a very conservative rate of 3 annually then comparing the cost of a standard 5kWp solar installation in Virginia 3 80 Watt minus the 30 federal tax credit divided by the cumulative energy produced annually 1300kWh kWp a in Virginia The reason for taking the tax credit into account initially is that it isn t possible to remove the subsidies provided to traditional energy sources so solar is calculated with subsidies in place The result is the graph below Basically the absence of fuel costs allows solar energy to decrease in price over time from the first day of installation Not to mention 30 years of solar energy is paid for up front The standard warranty for solar modules stands at 25 years which translates into a 30 year useful life for the product In summary solar energy is cheaper than traditional fuel based energy sources With the right policy to spur investment in renewable energy infrastructure solar in particular energy prices can be stabilized with only short term energy price increases to facilitate the initial investment and ramp up phase Over time the increases become negative dropping consumer energy prices The misconception that solar is still too expensive is the biggest obstacle facing the solar industry As long as that type of miss education persists we can expect more of the destructive legislation that weakens one of the brightest hopes for 21st century economic development in the USA Gail In

  • Moore's law in relation to the declining price of Solar Energy
    with the declining price of solar Not only does it make financial sense but solar technology can be implemented in any environment on the globe Since tax incentives and RECs have proven unreliable at best I would like to put forward a solution to both simplify and stabilize the sale of energy from renewable energy resources The solution is simply called an REPP or renewable energy purchase price It is a requirement that utilities purchase energy from renewable generators at a set price which is decreased over time at specific capacity intervals for each technology This energy is then resold at a profit by the utility In the case of solar this will only increase the cost to end users by roughly 2 to 6 dollars a month at its highest Over time the increase in cost becomes a reduction This will allow both the investors in renewable generation technology as well as the utility to profit from the sale of this electricity In the case of the utility the profits are guaranteed by adding a margin to the purchased power as well as the multiplicative benefits and cost savings through improved efficiencies To visualize what I m talking about I believe it is best to imagine the solar industry as a train a big train which is beautiful and shiny And the government has helped to build this train by dumping millions of investment into building this big beautiful shiny train The only thing is that the government did not invest in building the tracks So when the train leaves the manufacturing plant it crashes and burns The role of government is not to build trains but rather to build the tracks so that private industry can build the big beautiful shiny trains If the policy in place will reflect a position that allows investors to profit from the sale and resale of solar energy s true commodity electricity then the trains will be built by private industry Government needs only build the tracks Governmental investment in solar companies is not the best use of government funds Rather expending the political capital required to ensure that the framework is laid for solar and other renewable companies to succeed by providing a profitable return for the electricity sold will provide a return many times larger James Huff CEO abakus solar USA inc http dripable info Dripable Service Thats an all round incredibly written piece http minneapolisdwilawyer

  • Bill Hicks is still relevant | Don't judge Solar because of Solyndra
    throws a gun at a shepherd s feet and tells him Pick it up the shepherd refuses persistently but eventually picks up the gun He then shoots the shepherd and says You all saw it He had a gun Essentially the shepherd was set up for ultimate failure The solar industry in America is now facing a similar choice After watching and listening to the plethora of nonsense from half informed talking heads and the all out attack on renewable energy coming from the right I feel like it is time to inject some sanity into the discussion In order to adhere to the K I S S principal Keep It Simple Stupid because not everyone is an expert in solar energy I believe it is best to imagine the solar industry as a train a big train which is beautiful and shiny And the government has helped to build this train by dumping millions of investment into building this big beautiful shiny train The only thing is that the government did not invest in building the tracks So when the train left the manufacturing plant it crashed and burned It was destined for failure much like the shepherd in Hicks story The role of government is not to build trains but rather to build the tracks so that private industry can build the big beautiful shiny trains Solyndra s failure and the failure of other manufacturers on our shores was not a failure of the solar industry it was the failure of government to build the policy or political infrastructure to allow Solyndra and the solar industry to succeed If the policy will reflect a position that allows investors to profit from the sale and resale of its true commodity energy then the trains will be built by private

  • Decreasing Solar Cost will require the Market's need for clean energy
    for months for their goods to be used in projects that would produce energy for a market price according to the technology In other words they created a market demand that would remunerate the early investors in the technology with a return over a reasonable time frame And annually as the market shifted attention toward this market and prices began to fall so did the remuneration for new projects Other countries followed suit and created other programs which soaked up production although a majority of those programs were doomed to fail But the market reacted to the new opportunities and ramped up its production to meet demand As a result the prices began to fall in accordance with availability As the investments became too profitable the remuneration was lowered to match the market availability and production continued to expand due to the opportunities that were opening up around the world In the last decade all this time that Germany was ramping up its renewable resources at a cost no more than 2 EURO more a month for rate payers the United States has been sitting on its hands and pushing forward with impotent and complicated ideas when the answer was staring them right in the face And now that the Germans have come to within pennies of grid parity the USA is about to collapse the few weak programs that it has Now that the mood has been officially set the purpose of this article is to serve as a warning In the last few months how many major players both manufacturers and installers in the US market have gone belly up or left the US manufacturing environment The reason is not taxes or labor rates although these reasons might be popular whipping boys the reason is that the American market has not moved forward on intelligent policies to engender the growth of a solar market As companies collapse scale back production or move production closer to markets that are profitable the worldwide manufacturing capacity decreases If the cost per watt decreases with the increase of manufacturing capacity what happens when the manufacturing capacity decreases This is only point number one but let s assume that there is a magical miracle that allows module pricing to fall farther in the absence of manufacturing capacity increases aside from short term decreases due to offloading of overstock when markets close How far is it actually possible for module prices to fall before manufacturers run into the wall of commodity pricing Silicon aluminum silver oil plastics glass and more are used to manufacture solar modules Although the manufacturing techniques may be improving over time without markets in which to sell product how could anyone expect manufacturers to increase productivity to drop prices or to spend the money on R D to increase efficiencies The truth is that without markets that are open to accept solar products or allow investors to make a profit investing in the creation of solar energy the market will

  • REPP – Renewable Energy Purchase Price - Abakus Solar
    REPP rate and purchase power at retail energy costs This can be altered through utility bill reductions equivalent to the retail power cost in the payment to the power plant owner provided that the power plant is attached to a property which consumes power 8 The federal tax credits expire in 2016 provided that it is not eliminated in the next budget however the grant in lieu of tax credit and accelerated depreciation schemes expire at the end of 2011 and with current budget concerns in congress it is not likely that these programs will be extended 9 The cost of REPP implementation should be spread over the entire customer base According to current market conditions the increase of cost for retail power per MW of capacity added in the first year of implementation is 0 000036 36 ten thousandths of a penny or 36 millionths of a dollar Market caps can be established early in the implementation phase Although if the REPP is structured to prevent profitability which is too attractive then market caps will not be necessary 10 The REPP structure is akin to the German Feed in Bonus Einspeisevergütung which has added roughly 2 EURO per month to rate payers currently the installed solar capacity in Germany is 17 5 GW The country spurred the development of the solar industry through the use of this program A REPP program would be the beneficiary of the early German investment due to the late nature of its implementation Cost drops have already occurred and with markets rapidly shrinking manufacturers are looking for new markets to expand into with lower pricing The prospect of module manufacturers closing doors is very real and without new markets to absorb product the pricing will go upward rather than staying on a downward trend
